Well Fred started having seizures 3 hours after his vet visit, we're not sure what is causing those but he is on phenobarbitol and those so far are controlled. He is eating like a little piggy and drinking. It takes about 2 weeks for them to get used to the effects of the phenobarbitol so

Hi Amy, Not sure if I told you that Bailey my + had non-rengerative anemia and epogen got his HCT up. He started at 3 shots a week that you would be able to do at home, Fred is currently getting this for his non-regenerative anemia and in 4 weeks has gone from HCT 16% to 26%, that's

Took Fred in today because he is getting weaker and weaker, his HCT is up to 27.5, so still going up, I think he has a massive infection somewhere, he does have an ear infection and is on ear drops for that but I think he has a urinary tract infection too. Will have the results tomorrow.

Bailey was on epogen with his non regenerative anemia and it did bring his HCT back to normal, my Fred currently is on epogen, he is not positive but has non regenerative anemia because of CRF (chronic renal failure), his HCt is slowly coming back up. I prefer Nutrived to Pet Tinic because

It sounds like she has tummy acid, Fred has been doing this lately and he will not eat when he feels like this. He gets a 1/4 of a pepcid AC everyday for now, once his weight is up and his tummy feels better I will stop it if that every happens. Make sure it is pepcid AC and not extra

My Bailey didn't do well on the interferon either, he was lethargic and didn't eat well, he also was on the 7 on, 7 off, I finally stopped using it and he was fine for years until he passed from pancreatic cancer. Bailey was positive at 5 months of age when he found me, so pretty young too.
